Come see, hear and experience the works that has been created by our Artists in Residence over the last month. They have inhabited various spaces, so make sure to check out both the barn and the mill. Artworks will be for sale, and this is a great opportunity to support the emerging artists.

Tristan und Isolde - Daehyun Kim

Artist Daehyun Kim(also known as moonassi) has been drawing his daily thoughts and feelings with his character using only black ink for about ten years. On Friday, he will exhibit a 20 meter long drawing with a handmade drawing-rotate machine he invented. Along with the drawing, Wagner's one of the most beautiful opera, 'Tristan und Isolde' will be played.

A Year of Hearing - Briona Hendren

Everyday I live with a disability that no one can see, and each day is different. Some days I can hear, other days are close to obsolete. These prints are a representation of the fading in and out of my hearing on a day to day basis. It has been almost a decade since my first ear surgery. This is but a glimpse of how the years have been, and the struggles I have faced.

 

Feeling - Marisa Piló

The inspiration to build this sculpture was born from my relationship with materials and the act of welding them. I consider that a unique and particular experience that cannot be transferred to a material, it is special, visualized for someone of my body. 

Because, everyone sees, the same object differently. Because, everyone feels things differently. Because independent of the objects shape, everyone with their own specific imagination can see different things in the same shape. It’s all about feelings

Goethe said: “ A bull becomes furious only if he is presented with a red colour; a philosopher, on the other hand, goes into a rage as soon as the colour is mentioned.”

Distrabtion & Peregrine - Hannah Smith

The dominant focuses of Hannah's visual explorations are into mental health, currently with an autobiographical concentration on Anorexia, Bulimia, Compulsive Overeating, Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Depression. 

She aim to create spaces which encourage people to talk openly and freely about mental health, to help start conversations about the way society interacts with mental health; their own, the people that surround them and as a species collectively. 

At Arts Letters & Numbers she has been working on an ongoing oil painting series DISTRABTION. Which works to convey the complexities, confusion and shame of Body Dysmorphic Disorder, exploring the realities of not being able to fully comprehend your physical self. Her new series PEREGRINE focuses on the relationship between Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Depression and self harm. 

She will also exhibit her an installation bringing visual explorations of Eating Disorders and Body Dysmorphic Disorder into the same physical space. The installation will allow the audience to understand the constant pain of being consumed by concerns about the physical space you take up and how your perception of the self is consistently fluctuating. Whilst simultaneously considering how BDD and Eating disorders are intertwined, unrelated and parallel all concurrently.

 

12 Graphic Prints - Laurits Gulløv

Out of a fascination of ornamentation comes a series of 12 graphic prints all made in september. The prints are partly surface prints of objects, floors and walls in the mill and will be exhibited on the big white wall in the mill.
